Sunday ramblings two

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wish it was a little bit warmer so that we could sit on a rooftop deck somewhere in North Carolina and drink beers or iced tea together. But its March and I wouldn’t say its cold…but its definitely not warm. For the last week or so, when its sunny its super windy and when its warm its rainy. Can’t catch a break!

Today was a day off for me (finally!!). I haven’t really taken one in over two weeks. Between Easter and being in charge of special plant orders for the holiday and spending some days at a Garden show for work, I haven’t had much time for myself.

Today I slept in as much as my body would let me…which meant I was up at 7. I got to finish a little bit of laundry and sit down for breakfast with my dad and my younger sister who’s visiting for the weekend.

My mom’s birthday is on Wednesday so I also took advantage of my time and ran out to get her a little gift.IMG_2492

She has quite an eclectic collection of dishes and bowls that she likes to serve snacks and salads in when we have guests or a fancy dinner. I got her an awesome dish from Pier 1 for Christmas, and found two bowls that match it today for her birthday. Can’t wait to add to her funky collection. (She also started one for me recently..too bad the dishes are still wrapped up in my Hope Chest waiting to be used).

After Pier 1 I ran into the grocery store..like always. I wanted to grab a few things to crunch on at work for the week and it turned into a major fruit haul. Mangos, grapefruit, apples & tomatoes.

So now Im snacking on a super delicious Fuji apple and a chunk of Muenster cheese.

Oh, and yesterday I brought home another addition to my plant family. I have such a soft spot for succulents and cactus. I can’t explain it, but I especially love them when they bloom. And this ones about to.IMG_2499

Good thing I don’t have my own place yet! I’d be spending a lot on house plants. They just cheer up a room so much, and my mom has them everywhere.

Now that the suns starting to go down Im going to relax with my Organic Farm & Garden magazine that I found at the store today, and have some of my dads homemade chili. Sounds like a good Sunday night to me.

How did you spend your time today?
